While spending a few hours on the wall today we suddenly came across this beautifull looking place and thought that is smart. Sitting on the intersection like that and it’s colourful Tudor style exterior makes it hard to miss and hard not to admire, well...More

A great small 'museum' to show how people used to live. We enjoyed touring this small house (small admission fee) and look at artifacts from a former life.

We stumbled upon this one whilst walking along the wall besides it. You have got to admire how they have managed to keep all these fascinating buildings in excellent decorative order.

Probably the most photographed house in Rothenberg but a very recent addition to the city being built just after the war but you will still have to jiggle about to get a photo such as this one.

From the city's walls is where you can get a wonderful view of "The Gerlachschmiede," a wondrously triangular building located between the Röder and the Gallows Tower. This beautifully crafted building is another of the unique photo treasures of the city. Sadly, as were other...More

This beautifully crafted building is another of the photo treasures of the city, like the Plonlein and the Rathaus. The forge house is a rebuilt building. It is seen easily as you walk the wall around the Roder gate and Tower.
